Unemployed Swedes Are to Be Convinced to Move to Jobs in the North

A labor shortage in Northern Sweden has led the government to ask the Public Employment Agency to investigate how more unemployed people in other parts of the country could be convinced to move to where the jobs are.

That is reported by Radio Sweden.

" We need to allow a process where things need to sink in; you might need to try things before you make the final decision," says Ida Rönnblom at the agency's office in Skellefteå.

More money set aside for people who need to travel to job interviews and support to do internships in other parts of the country could be part of the solution, according to Rönnblom.
